Having a problem with staining of the carpet fuzz in my 2859, I went up to S E Alaska fishing this summer and found numerous leaks throughout the Boat and just pulled the front hatch to begin my sealing project. Now the problem lots of nasty looking stains how should I take care them?? Hoping the collective wisdom on this forum will solve this, thanks. :woohoo:

I've had good results with Oxiclean, let it dry and vacuum.

I also use Oxiclean and a little Green Machine steamer. Comes out looking like new. I have also sprayed the Oxiclean on , then use a cleaning brush on the stain, let sit for a while and then vacum of with wet/dry shop vac.

replace that "rat fur' with marine vinyl, it's what bayliner did in the motoryachts because of all the sooting from the diesels.

I just finished this job on our new to us boat. I don't think it had been done since the boat was new... ugh!

I sprayed the liquid bottle type (picked up at Home Depot) of Oxiclean on the fur. I found that mixing up the powder sold at our local grocery store did not do as good of job cleaning the fur.

Once sprayed on, I rubbed it with a wet rag to get it down into the fur. Let it sit wet on the fur for at least 5 minutes, then I used a carpet cleaner we had with an upholstery cleaner attachment to spray water on it while it vacuumed it back out along with the dirt and the Oxiclean. Running the upholstery attachment over it a number of times spraying water and sucking it out until no more soap was foaming up on the fur. The fur was almost dry once this was done AND fur came out CLEAN.

I found doing an area about 2 ft X 2 ft made getting it all easy to do. Spray the area, rub it in. Then go and spray the next area while the first area sits a while. Then go back to the first area and water spray/vacuum until the suds are gone. Once that is done, spray the next area (#3 area) to sit, then go to the second area you sprayed Oxiclean on and water spray/vacuum the second area. keep doing this until you are done. The nice part is that you can see how nice it looks as I go along.

I found that while using a wet/dry vac worked, it would start blowing foaming bubbles out of the exhaust after about a half hour of use. It worked great but the carpet cleaner worked better without blowing soapy foam all over the boat. I dumped the dirty water in the bathhouse at the marina to keep it out of the boat's head or the sound (where my sink drains to).

It took me about two hours to do the V-berth. An hour to do the Head. 3 hours to do the lower aft cabin. About two hours to do above the helm and galley, behind the settee and behind the storage for the table. I did it over three weekends because I could ONLY do so much overhead at a time before my neck and arm was killing me. If you are a monster, and/or your boat isn't too dirty, this can be done in a day.

The job took 1.25 bottles of Oxiclean to do the entire boat. It really goes a long way.

Oh the great part of this job... When you return to the boat after a day or more, the area you cleaned is EVEN cleaner and brighter. The Oxiclean keeps whitening as it drys.

Good luck!

Cost me $800 for the professional upholsterer to remove it and install new. Not the sort of thing I was interested in doing myself.

My 2452 is a 2001 model and the accumulated dirt on the headliner gave it a bad yellow tinge.
I have a Royal carpet cleaner with the upholstery wand. I used the royal brand carpet shampoo with it and it came out looking like new.
Hint: warm up the water and shampoo before using works better hot.
It took 2 applications and about 3 hours to do it.
BTW: the royal machines are used in rental. Should be able to get on at a rental store. Make sure you have the upholstery wand and instructions with it.
As far as the oxy spray, I have seen professional cleaners use it.

head over to Sailrite, Rochford Supply or Great lakes Skipper and pick the color headliner you want. Like any fabric it just comes in rolls.

Before you replace. I have a 1988. Bought it with stains and black mold everywhere. Complete mess. The grey fuzz is very delicate so do not rub too hard. I used about a 70/30 bleach to water mix in a $15 pump sprayer from Home depot. (Wear a mask) After several applications it came out like new. I mean really new! Do not need to scrub. Spray and wait overnight then spray again. After a few days it all comes out with no stains. Hope this helps. JR

I have had a 1988 2455 for about eight years. The monkey fur had spots that were black when we purchased it. My first reaction was to rip it out and put in a new liner. My wife however used a 50/50 bleach and water combo in a spray bottle on it. She sprayed it twice over a couple of days and used a warm cloth to dab it after the first application. She did not dab it after the seconcond application because it came out very clean. You may want to try this or a commercial cleaner, I think you will be surprised with the results.

Commercial cleaner: enforcer products "zep" brand "mildew and mold stain remover" really works and read the instructions. Found at Home depot in their housewares dept.
I was a safety guy and had to label chemicals used in the building. Got to see what the professional cleaning crews use.

Zep (purple) works great - Please make sure you wear a good mask. It is toxic to breathe if you use it straight. But boy is captharv right - it does work!
